The Status of the Alabama Primary Care Physician Workforce (2018) – Policy Paper

Produced by the Office for Family Health Education & Research, UAB School of Medicine, this policy paper is designed to evaluate the availability of Alabama’s primary care physicians to Alabama residents using rational service areas (RSAs) for primary care (PCSAs) that are both descriptive and normative, based on spatial accessibility, and meet federal criteria for Health Resources & Services Administration (HRSA) Rational Service Areas.  It is also designed to establish the number of primary care physicians (PCPs) that are needed to allow Alabama’s residents access to a PCP within a 30 minute drive time from their residence location (spatial accessibility).
